On admission of a child, parents/caregivers will be issued with an Enrolment Form to complete. It important to fill out all details; parent contact details, emergency contact numbers, health details and ethnic identification. Please remember to sign and date the form. Please advise the school promptly when changes occur, whether for the short or long term.
A copy of the child’s birth certificate or passport is required to be sighted on enrolment to verify the date of birth as being correct.
A copy will be put on file.
The parent’s/caregiver’s passport and child’s passport and visa are also required to be sighted if the child is not a New Zealand born citizen. This will assist with verification of the child’s visitor/resident status or qualification for free education, if parents/caregivers have a work permit.
End of day procedure
We have a very good system at the end of the day to ensure children meet their expected destination. Please make sure that the school is notified directly of any changes from the normal arrangement. Otherwise bus students will be sent home on the bus if no message is received. To ensure safe practice, it is not sufficient for students to advise us of any changes.
We often call on parents/caregivers to help with a variety of activities including sport, library maintenance, educational trips, fund raising and other programmes of work. Please let the school know of any talents, skills or interests you are willing to share with children and teachers or other ways you might like to help. Your assistance will be most welcome. We have an open door policy and welcome you in the classrooms or around the schools at anytime.
